Keeping your installation of Magento up to date is important because it insures your website is not hacked through a known vulnerability in Magento. If your Magento installation has already been hacked we can clean it up and then upgrade it. In addition to making sure your website is secure, new releases fix bugs and or add new features. The current versions of Magento is 220.127.116.11 (check what version you are currently running). If you prefer not to upgrade it yourself, we can do it for you following the proper upgrade procedure. We will also upgrade any out of date extensions that are installed.
We have extensive experience dealing with the many issues that can occur during the upgrade process, especially the issues which occur due to the changes made from Magento 1.3.x to 1.4.x. For upgrades from one major version to another (e.g. 1.7.x to 1.8.x) we will perform a test of the upgrade on our local systems and then we will also set up a test of the upgrade on your website so that you can do additional testing of the upgrade before going live with the upgraded version.
We can usually upgrade your Magento installation in a week.
